Ireland – An Aerial Journey is a new book of aerial photography by Cork-based photographer Dennis Horgan. Dennis is a professional aerial photographer and the author of four best-selling books of aerial photography. This latest work will feature high- and low-altitude imagery of the entire island of Ireland, captured during the course of the last year from both light aircraft and helicopters. Text will be by Tim McCarthy, a keen amateur photographer and hillwalker with an extensive knowledge of the Irish landscape.
The book will have a wide-ranging appeal across all ages and social groups both in Ireland and abroad. The subject matter will include heritage, inland/coastal landscapes, commerce, maritime and architecture. It will showcase Ireland’s historic structures, its modern vibrant buildings and its infrastructure. Ranging from Cape Clear in the south to Rathlin Island in the north, the imagery will be a departure from the standard book of its type. Aerial photography creates the opportunity to see a subject from a different perspective and show it in relation to its wider surroundings, which is difficult to do from ground level. The effect that the inhabitants of our island have on the land they live in will be featured in creative and imaginative photography. The island of Ireland is one of the most beautiful in the world and has an amazing variety of sights. The author captures a diverse collection of images from the majesty of Skellig Michael to cities with their strikingly modern architecture.
Ireland – An Aerial Journey is a tribute to the skills of this highly creative aerial photographer who is a master at producing captivating images from high above the land.
